What’s the difference between OverDrive and Libby?

Both the newer Libby app and the classic OverDrive app are made by OverDrive and allow you to borrow, read and listen to the same digital content from the library.

Libby has a fresh, easy-to-use design that’s built for mobile devices. It’s the best app for most users (in our opinion!) and is compatible with Android and iOS devices.

OverDrive has a more robust search function, some added features (like recommending titles for purchase) and is compatible with more devices (including Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows mobile devices and MP3 transfers to a computer).

You can use one or both, depending on your device(s) – it’s totally up to you!
